One of the designers who made it happen

Winner - GDT Design
To the next lucky website contest holder, Consider yourself fortunate if GDT Design chooses to participate in your design contest. I cannot say enough about GDT Design. He won an ultra competitive website challenge with SIX amazing and super creative finalists. I gave GDT copious, detailed notes, and he followed them to the letter, while continuing to produce elegant, crisp designs. He has no ego--meaning, he eagerly accepts feedback and corrections, and had no problem adapting his creative to fit my business needs. A desirable trait in such a talented person! I have very high standards, and GDT met or exceeded them all. GDT did a fantastic job of utilizing my logo elements and weaved them intricately throughout all the pages of my website design challenge. He also created a strong stylized aesthetic which really added character to my website. During the design process, it was clear that he did a good job reading the design brief and understood what was required of him; this meant that his initial designs were of high quality. After the job was done (he was already declared the winner of the contest), when he found out I could not afford one of the images he used, he gladly found and replaced the image with a more reasonable alternative. GDT is a nice guy, a talented artist, and a true design partner. I look forward to working with him in the future. Sincerely, Bernard Lee

How cd21419 started their web page design journey

Company name

Child Humor

Overview

Childhumor.com is a content website about all the funny and silly things kids (and sometime parents) do. We love kids and all the funny things they say and do.

The site will be a blog style site where parents can share pictures, stories and videos about the funny things their kids do and say.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Our primary audience is stay-at-home moms with kids between the ages of 0-11. These moms love to read new gossip about celebraties on People.com, find a new recipe or craft idea on MarthStewart.com and check out the new happenings on Oprah.com.

They also have a recent addiction to Daily Deal websites relating to moms and kids. These websites include http://mamabargains.com/ and http://babysteals.com/.

Attached is the child_humor_mock_up.pdf. This was a design we had done that we are not completely happy with.

Don't Like:
-Not sure about the color scheme. You make want to chose different colors based on the childhumor_logo_colorSchemes (1).pdf.

-Not sure about the ad space on the left. May want the content to be flush with the left side on the content area.

-The "Connect" box in the top right is taking up too much real estate on the page

-The navigation bar is too thick

-Not sure we like the font used, and don't like the lowercase in the navigation

-We want the "Contests" to be highlighted more in the navigation

WE DO LIKE:
-The back ground is clever using part of our logo

-All the buttons (facebook, twitter, child humor blog, up and down buttons) are designed well

-Placement of the Upload Button

-The bottom site link area of the page
